For The King's Pleasure

Description

This pioneering study of one of the most lavish and costly interior decoration schemes ever carried out in England provides an unparalleled insight into George IV's patronage of the arts. Drawing on much previously unpublished material, including royal correspondence, original accounts and detailed inventories, Hugh Roberts reconstructs the history of George IV's last and greatest commission, the rebuilding and refurnishing of the Private Apartments at Windsor Castle.

Sir Hugh Roberts was Director of the Royal Collection and Surveyor of The Queen's Works of Art since 1996, and has extensive knowledge of the decorative arts in the Royal Collection. He was also closely involved in the restoration of Windsor Castle after the serious fire in 1992.
